About this pro
My work stands out from others because I continually listen to clients/athletes and work with them to re-evaluate goals so that they can accomplish goals and are continually able to make new goals all while having fun. I am also known for throwing in a creative new workout to keep clients/athletes on their toes and in-tune with their body. What I like most about my job is being able to help others succeed and being able to provide the encouragement that they need. Whether it's an 8 year old who was able to do correct breathing for freestyle or a triathlete who needs to work on upper body strength. I love being able to help people meet their goals, succeed, and move on to the next goal.

- How did you get started doing this type of work?I decided to get into personal training and fitness coaching due to growing up in a family of athletes. I think for me, seeing my Grandfather inducted into the Indiana basketball hall of fame and seeing how he turned his love of coaching into helping/teaching referees was inspiring. Then my own personal sports and athletic endeavors, and having the opportunity to coach from an early age, has helped me see the impact coaches have on athletes and how personal trainers have on individuals.
- What types of customers have you worked with?The most common types of jobs I do for clients include: private swim lessons, small group swim lessons, create a months worth of water workouts for triathletes, and creating a 6 week exercise program (weights, running, HIIT, etc.) for clients wanting to focus on something specific (ie. upper body strength, core strength and stability, legs, stretching, etc.).
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?I am a stickler for technique. In the sport of swimming, technique is a must and it carries over into being a personal trainer a bit.
